a very nice bit of NZ cycle racing history,
I was starting to feel a bit better.
is this series of photos from the 1938
Empire Games, held that year in Sydney. This great shot
of the start of the road race, shows the English
rider on the left, using a Sturmey Archer racing hub
fitted to his machine.
Surely this would have had to be one of the last
times a Sturmey Archer was used at this level
of International road racing?
Although you never know with the Poms, that's why
we love them so much!
Two of the English riders, both look to be using
Super Champion derailleurs (or Cyclo Ace).
One of my favorites, I assume this is John Brown
who won the Silver medal in the same race.
